EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry donated $15,000 to provide hygiene products to students and families at the East Cleveland City School District amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Landry partnered with Meijer to buy and package items such as soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste and other personal care products.
Families with students enrolled in East Cleveland City schools can pick up the care packages on Monday, April 6 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Shaw High School, Superior Elementary School and Caledonia Elementary School while supplies last.
Landry’s donation is expected to help more than 1,300 families.
“Although we are facing unprecedented challenges right now, it is important to remember that we are all in this together,” Landry said in a press release. “I love the City of Cleveland, and I want to make sure our communities have the support that they need to stay safe and healthy. We hope these items will help ease burdens and protect the well-being of the families and students of East Cleveland.”
